Your Safety Is Our Concern
Phthalates are a group chemicals used in the manufacture of flexible/elastic PVC products such as Swiss Balls and clear plastic tubing (such as used in medical devices). Over recent years there has been growing concern about the health implications of injesting Phthalates and more recently about proximal contact with products containing Phthalates.
The Australian Government and the European Union have legislated to limit the amount of the single most common Phthalate (DEHP) in any product to 10%.
AOK products after rigorous testing and product development are now classed as Phthalate Free. Independent tests for the 7 most key Phthalates show that our product to contain less than 0.1% in total – In fact they could not be detected at all in most tests.
This keeps well and truly ahead of the European requirements and of the Australian requirement of a limit of only 10% DEHP. It also complies completely with the strictest piece of legislation in the world – the California Proposition 65 (which has banned over 550 chemicals).
AOK truly leads the way in the best swiss balls (mediball, duraball & Maxball) and exercise products in the world.
I am a customer of the Max Balls, and I love the balls!
In your own introduction of AOK Duralon, you said,
“Duralon™ – A Combination of PVC and DEHP Phthalate Plasticisers”
What percentage of DEHP was used in the Duralon Balls?
Now you also say that, “AOK products after rigorous testing and product development are now classed as Phthalate Free”. Would you please give me the test reference?
